Vietnam’s First Sanctuary And Rescue Center Helping All Kinds Of Animals
Many people in many areas of the globe battle to ensure that animals are treated fairly, and one of these people is a woman who, through her efforts, has managed to establish the first sanctuary and rescue center for all types of animals in Vietnam.
Catherine Besch is an American woman living in Vietnam who realized that she could no longer stand by and watch animals suffer.
I no longer wanted to be an ordinary person who stood by and saw dog and cat hunters and innocent animals in the streets begging for rescue.
As a result, Catherine co-founded an animal protection nonprofit in 2013 to aid all of Vietnam’s stray animals. She was able to establish Vietnam Animal Aid and Rescue (VAAR), a rescue facility dedicated to aiding dogs and cats, after a lot of hard work.
Soon after, he recognized that the situation was more than just companion animals, so he started rescuing all the animals in need. VAAR is ready to battle for chickens, monkeys, hedgehogs, ducks, pigs, ducks, goats, chickens, and dogs and cats in need.
Catherine explained to Bored Panda, ”
“I usually tell people that running an animal rescue facility is like running a 30-ring circus on fire,” she says. It’s a piece inspired by the current crisis, in which it’s impossible to avoid witnessing unnecessary pain and death on a daily basis…”
This organization’s sanctuary is the first of its type in Vietnam, and its major goal is to alleviate the suffering of all animals. It carries out mass sterilization, immunization, and education programs to attain this aim, as well as improving veterinary care across the country.
VAAR promotes a completely vegan lifestyle and the eradication of all animal use and exploitation in whatever form. Regardless of their use to humans, they believe that all animals have intrinsic rights to a better existence that we must respect.
The rescue center and farm sanctuary, where the animals are housed in a wide, protected garden, make up the organization.
Katherine continued, ”
“Knowing that we were responsible for hundreds of creatures being rescued from situations where there was no hope is fulfilling…”
Almost majority of the canines are rescue and medical rehabilitation cases, while the cats are generally saved from markets.
